Passover is approaching and our thoughts are once again turning to how we can keep our congregation connected in these extraordinary times. Passover is a communal festival celebrated at home with family & friends and the welcoming in of strangers, or at the famous WLS Communal Seder. This year will be no different - celebrated in family groups but connected by Zoom or at our second Communal Zoom Seder.  

Every member will receive a Passover celebration pack and the chance to order a three course Seder meal and/or all the pre-prepared items for the Seder plate, as well as order hard copies of the recently published WLS Haggadah. You will even be able to make this a special year for a member of your family or a friend by sending them a gift of a meal. The order form is being sent out on an interactive email on Monday, 1st March for response by Friday, 12th March.

Why not think of helping other members of the Community celebrate by giving the ultimate gift of a meal to a stranger by sponsoring a meal for someone you don’t know. Any amount, large or small, will make a difference, enabling all our members to feel more connected to the community this Passover.
